Halloween nails - AHS: Coven

I again fell in love with American Horror Story Coven! I love the new season but Coven still has my heart! OMG I can't get over how amazing and darkly romantic this show is :)

So I wanted to make nails that have traditional Halloween colors and a pentagram that reminds me so much of witchcraft *sorry for my mainstream way of thinking*



For this mani I used China glaze C-c-c-courage as base. The pumpkin and skull filled glitter base is Black cat lacquer The Pumpkin king. And the stamps are made with Essence stamp me black and Sinful colors Mardi gras



Here is my inspiration! If you don't like the visuals at least listen to the music it was made to mess you up :)



Any other AHS fans out there?

Pick n Mix challenge: 3 dark colors

I love dark colors and vampy ones are my favorite! I wanted to make layers of dark feather stamps - but my camera was just not picking them up as they looked in real life :( But the nails still look pretty thou they look more like layers of fish scales stamps.

The base is Catrice Black to the roots. The stamps are made with Chine glaze Tounge & chic, Don't make me wine. The plates I used are MM14 and MM08.

MoYou London review - Fashionista 08

I got the great honor to work with the amazing stamping plate company MoYou London again. They relay dominate the stamping market. I am obsessed with the damask wallpaper type of patterns since forever. And when I saw this Fashionista 08 plate I fell in love! It is the most amazing collection of 3 different sized patterns. I just had to make a romantic vampy fall mani full of beautiful dark colors <3  


Here is the plate with the sleeve and a close up of the patterns.



As always the plates are etched perfect the pictures pick up perfectly. And they fit my tiny nail beds quite nicely. 



For this mani I used Misslyn Purple rain as base. The stamps are done with Dashica Red and Essence stamp me! black.

Sunday stamping: Zombie bunnies

This weeks Sunday stamping challenge in AiS was freestyle Halloween mani. I just wanted to do something cute and in classic colors - orange, purple, black and green. And how adorable are zombie bunnies that go BOOH? <3

For this mani I used OPI Where did Suzis man-go?, Catrice Be my Violetine and made some linear gradients. Then I made some distressed black tips with Essence stamp me! black which is perfect for this since the bottle was quite empty and every stroke was a perfect distressed line. The stamps are done with Essence stamp me! white and Mundo de Unas polish. The plate I used is MoYou London Sci fi 01





Who said Halloween nails can't be adorable :)

You can never have enough skeletons in your closet

I love Halloween time because my skull and bones fetish is finally not frowned upon for a short time. And this year I was not completely broke when the 'costumes' hit the stores. I already have a lot of skull and crossbones clothes but now I finally got the chance to create a full skeleton look :)

The gloves and the stockings were supposed to be glow in the dark but from what I saw so far they didn't glow. Maybe they are one of those that need to be exposed to light 1st. So to put this skeleton look together as a simple idea for a Halloween costume :)

Here is the complete look that includes skeleton gloves, stockings and a rainbow galaxy skeleton sweather. Some lace shorts and huge dark eye make up. To show off the feet bones I wore some opened toe shoes - which might not be a very good idea for an actual night out since it's getting cold out there. I also got these crazy eye candy that fits perfectly to my close up image the the best bone details :)



I fell in love with the new Book of life movie trailer and it inspired this look a bit :)


Here is another picture of the outfit with the gloves a bit more exposed <3

Sweather: eBay, Shoes: eBay, shirts: Red star, Gloves: Muller, Stockings: Lidl


Do you ever want to wear a simple version of a Halloween costume in every day life?

Pick n Mix challenge: Grey + color

I adore the color gray in any combination with a bright color. But the best partner for gray is yellow in my opinion :) I had this amazing Arcane lacquer called State of grace for a while and now it's time to make it shine. Since it's quite sheer I made a stampwich with some Mundo de Unas polishes and hehe 005 plate. I added some studs from Bornpretty store on the accent finger since I thought it needed something extra.

I kind off like how it turned out - all pretty, shimmery and subtle :)



Here is a swatch of Arcane lacquer State of grace. It's a gray jelly with gold shimmer and gold shards. It's a bit on the sheer side so I used a layer of white polish as base.



If you want any of the amazing Arcane lacquers head on over to her etsy store :)

Guest post: Hot mess stilettos

Excitement time over here! My BPFF (Best polish friend forever) owner of Hysteria of decay blog made a lovely guest post for me today. We threw out a bunch of words and created a theme - Hot mess stilettos is what came out. So don't forget to visit her at her blog Hysteria of decay and lets see what she wrote about these amazing nails :) 

Hello!
In case you don't know me, I'm Ina from Hysteria of decay and a good friend of Gin (at least that's what I tell myself) I was a bit scared of doing nail art for this post because Gin is a master of nail art doer (yes that's a word). I tired my best to bring some drama in these ''Hot mess stilettos'' themed nails. I went for a fun and easy design, my favourite nail is the middle finger, love the combination of neon gradient and leopard spots. I hope you'll like it too <3

Polishes used: 
- Yes love 337
- Depend 035
- Color club Wham! Pow!
- Models own Bubblegum
- Ruby kisses Look at me purple
- Wet n Wild Darkest hour
- P2 Let's dance!
- Born pretty studs and rhinestones







Now how perfect are these nails! <3

Catrice and Essence blogger event (picture heavy)

This week the event of the year happened in my little country of Slovenia! Essence and Catrice decided to again invite us to a fabulous blogger event. And to make it more magical the event was held in a castle <3 
When we arrived we were greeted by the lovely Cosnova staff, amazing food and a lot of cosmetics by both brands. Even extremely rare Limited edition stands. Then we got a very informative short lecture about the brands development, marketing and future collections. GIRLS GET READY FOR SOME RELAY COOL LIMITED EDITIONS! :) 
After that we had the honor and opportunity to try out anything and even take some swag with us. I was so happy since I was finally able to get my hand on the Yes we rock products that I couldn't find anywhere in stores. Make up reviews incoming :)

The best part of it all was that I was able to talk to 'the boss lady' Katarina from Germany made me feel like such a grown up talking about marketing :) Thank you again all who made this cool event happen <3





Here is my BFF Miss Hysteria completely ignoring me and being in love with the products :)


So many things to choose from ...





Here is the latest LE from Essence that hasn't hit the stores - it's Xmas themed, so adorable.





Many yummy and delicious sweets <3




We even had the opportunity to get our nails done by a professional :)


My favorite part of the decorations where these small picture frames with Catrice products - so classy <3





The location of the event was truly magical ...




In all I got 3 bags full of swag - stationary, make up and nail products. I was feeling so blessed and I want to share my happiness with you all! So get ready for some International giveaways soon :)




Tomorrow I will post the nails I wore to the event. The ladies from Cosnova liked it and I was so proud :)
